Oh right......you've gone for Liberty then.
Shouldn't the ground be shaking, or the skies crackling, or something? I sense that the news websites are struggling to raise much enthusiasm over the exit of Mr. Ecclestone. It is probably because since the new guys came in, it has been assumed there would be no room for Bernie, so the actual announcement is something less explosive, and more, oh....yeah....right....goodbye.
I know that the tributes will eventually start to flow, some balanced, some vitriolic, and a huge amount draining the sugar reserves of nations.
It is said that history is made by the people who are in the right place at the right time, and I reckon that is mostly true, though I would add.....and made the right decision. Bernie saw that he was in a unique place and had the vision and conviction to follow through ruthlessly until he had created what he saw was ready to be created. Since then, he has done some good and some awful things, but I guess really, it is that one battle, and its outcome that made all of what we complain about today, possible.
